Lagochile trigona ( Herbst, 1790) 

Melolontha trigona Herbst 1790: 159 

Note. Eleven presently recognized subspecies of Lagochile trigona  have been described, three of which occur in the research area. The other eight are L. trigona bolivari Soula, 2005  (recorded from Colombia), L. trigona cordata Benderitter, 1925  (recorded from Venezuela, Colombia), L. trigona gaujoni Soula, 2005  (recorded from Ecuador), L. trigona goyazensis Soula, 2005  (recorded from Brazil), L. trigona mancocapaci Soula, 2005  (recorded from Peru), L. trigona pozuzoensis Soula, 2005  (recorded from Peru), L. trigona trochanterica ( Burmeister, 1855)  (recorded from Venezuela, Trinidad and Tobago) and L. trigona tupacamarui Soula, 2005  (recorded from Bolivia).

Distribution. Guyana: Herbst 1790: 159 (as Melolontha trigona  ); Erichson 1848: 562 (as Chasmodia trigona  ); Soula 2005: 355 (designation NEOTYPE Melolontha trigona  ). Suriname: MHCN - NEW COUN- TRY RECORD (Suriname, Para, Colakreek, (5°27′45″N, 55°13′45″W). 11/ 21-I-2013. A. J. Hielkema.

Brazil: Ohaus 1934: 162 (as Lagochile trigona  [s. l.]); Blackwelder 1944: 243 (as Lagochile trigona  [s. l.]). “Amazon Basin”: Ohaus 1934: 162 (as Lagochile trigona  [s. l.]). Other: Ohaus 1934: 162 (Bolivia–Colombia - as Lagochile trigona  [s. l.]); Blackwelder 1944: 243 (Bolivia, Colombia - as Lagochile trigona  [s. l.]); Machatschke 1972: 81 (Bolivia–Colombia - as Lagochile trigona  [s. l.]); Soula 2009: 22 (none - picture).

Note. Before the publication of Soula (2005), in which eight new subspecies of Lagochile trigona  were described and two existing species were reassigned as subspecies of L. trigona  , no subspecies of this species were recognized. Following Soula (2005), all specimens found in countries outside the research area are now assigned to subspecies not occurring in the Guianas. Unfortunately, Soula (2005) does not mention the distribution of the nominal subspecies except for the type specimen, which was collected in Guyana. Because of this omission, we have elected to include here the full distribution of the species as given by earlier authors, even as this subspecies is still only known to occur in Guyana and Suriname.
